Originally published in 1907 as part of "The Kennel Encyclopaedia." Only 1500 copies of these volumes were ever published and consequently remain rare and expensive. This extremely comprehensive and informative extracted treatise on the bloodhound was the first in-depth publication to deal with this ancient breed. The contents are well illustrated with photographs of famous bloodhounds. Contents include: History - Origins - Breeding - Training - Hunting - Man Hunting - Management - Pedigrees - Points and Characteristics etc. This fascinating book will prove of great interest to all who own or breed bloodhounds.
